We’ve seen some truly wonderful horror films over the years, but we’re often disappointed when they fall short of being the best movies of their time.
For years, the big studio-friendly horror films have struggled to find a place in the horror canon, as the studio’s films tended to focus on a very specific kind of horror.
The result was often lackluster sequels and rebooted films, which in turn failed to live up to the big, franchise-killing releases of the late 1980s and early 1990s.
But now that we have a chance to see some of the best horror movies of the past 10 years, it’s safe to say that we’re not going to be disappointed any time soon.
Here are 10 of the most notable horror films of the year that are worthy of being considered classics.
The Night Of: The Nightmare Before Christmas 2-disc Blu-ray release: This was a fantastic, scary sequel to the 1989 film that made its debut at the box office, starring Jennifer Aniston, who had a great turn in the role.
However, the film’s director, Joe Dante, also helmed two other cult films from the same year, The Mummy and The Last Witch Hunter, so it’s no surprise that the sequel failed to reach the heights of its predecessor.
The Night Of also lost its director for that film, but the filmmakers of the new film, David Lowery and Dan O’Bannon, do a fine job bringing this cult classic back to life.
The Last Witch Hunt 2-disk Blu-Ray release: The Last Witches Hunt was one of the biggest hits of the 1990s, starring Charlize Theron, and was followed by the follow-up The Last Night, which is still a cult classic.
But its director, Scott Derrickson, is no stranger to horror movies, having directed the original film, and this time he takes a much more traditional horror film approach to the sequel, focusing on the supernatural forces that brought on the apocalypse.
There are still some great monsters in the sequel (the vampires are still alive and well), but Derricksons approach is much more subtle and subtle.
The Last Hunt is still worth checking out, but you may want to skip the sequel for the best experience.
The Ring 2-DVD release: If there’s one film that was inspired by a book, it was probably The Ring.
Based on the best-selling novel by Stephen King, the first film was about a group of teenage girls who discover a powerful ring that connects them to an evil supernatural entity known as the Ring.
The sequel was much more ambitious and focused on a young girl named Gwen, played by Scarlett Johansson.
The film also features an original musical score by Paul McCartney.
It’s a great film that still manages to get all the scares right, but if you’re looking for something that’s a little bit darker, The Ring 2 is a great option.
The Ring 3-disc DVD/Blu-ray: The first film in the The Ring series, The Rise Of The Ring was also a big hit.
It was based on a popular novel by Michael Chabon, but it’s also a horror movie, and the sequel had some truly memorable scenes.
It also introduced a brand new character, Dr. Martin Stein, who was played by Mark Ruffalo.
But the biggest thing about The Rise of the Ring was that it gave us a new character for the first time, played perfectly by Charlize Tazewell.
The Rise and the Rise of The Ring are both worthy of seeing again, but The Ring is better for the whole package.
The Mummy 2-episode DVD/BD release: There’s been some debate over whether or not this one should be included on this list, but when you consider the number of good sequels and reboots that have been released in recent years, you have to give it a shot.
The Mummies return to form as they take the role of a group called the Daedalus Crew, a group that had been sent by the Ancient One to retrieve the tomb of the last mummy.
But when a group member starts to have visions of the ancient past, the crew must find a way to escape.
If you’re a fan of the original Mummy, this is a good entry point.
The Rise Of the Tomb Raider: The Masks Of The Dead 2-CD release: You can find this sequel in a lot of places.
It debuted in 2017, and it’s a fairly popular movie, with the film earning a number of awards and winning two Golden Globes.
However this movie has one major problem.
It takes place in a time when people didn’t know what a mummy was.
This movie was based loosely on the books, but was adapted to make it more realistic.
This is a shame, as it’s really a great entry point for people who love the books.
There’s also an excellent music score by The Who,
